W*A*R*S is a 13-part sci-fi web series featuring original music from The Red Stars, Martin Duffy (Primal Scream), J-Felix (Tru Thoughts) and FABLE. It will be available to watch for free here on weareredstars.com and YouTube later this year, and was exclusively previewed at Shangri-La, Glastonbury this summer.
The show is set in a Utopian/Dystopian divided future. It tells the true story of how we, The Red Stars, came to be (it just hasn't happened yet in your time, get it?). The story follows a daring mission by a group of oddballs and misfits (we're a modest bunch) who find out they are destined to become the last hope for human free-will. Jake Titan leads the fight against the all-powerful OneCor and their CEO Citizen of The Year Gordon Romance - a sociopath obsessed with developing the ultimate AI to design a future (our future) in which all citizens are enslaved through a materialistic obsession with perfection.
The show has been created, written and produced by The Red Stars in collaboration with award winning director Jamie Patterson of Jump Start Productions (City of Dreamers, Fractured, Caught). It stars Jordon Metcalfe (Pride, Misfits), Ruben Crow (AustenLand, The Way We're Wired), April Pearson (Skins, Tormented), Joss Porter (Wolf Hall, Doc Martin), Zannah Hodson (Persuasion, Father Brown), George Webster (Tripped, My Name Is Emily), Louise Salter (Butterfly, How to be Human).
